Referee's report by Rudolf Ernst Peierls, on a paper 'Kinetic theory of diffusion in gases and liquids. II. General kinetic theory of liquids mixtures' by L M Yang

Reference number: RR/71/288

Date: 1948

Description

Sectional committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings. The author assembles lots of complicated equations but gives no practial method of solving them. The sixth section isn't intelligible and should be expanded. His claim that the solution is rigorous should be omitted.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1949].
